Shopify App : Facebook Countdown Retargeting

Re-engage your store visitors using countdown ads

Facebook ads

What is retargeting?

Retargeting, is a form of online advertising. that can help you keep your products in front of visitors after they leave your store.

What is countdown retargeting?

Instead of displaying regular image or carousel ads to people who visited and didn't complete a purchase, our app will display interactive countdown time inside a video ad.

What happens when the user clicks on the ad?

The user will be redirected to your store as with any other Facebook ad, the only difference is that a customizable countdown timer will be displayed inside your store. The timer displayed in your store will be in sync with the timer in the video ad, creating a seamless and native experience.

72 hours countdown

The app will retarget visitors of your store who didn't complete a purchase with a 72 hours countdown campaign, during the campaign the visitor will be targeted with multiple ads.

Example scenario:

1) A visitor visited your store but didn't buy anything

2) After 12 hours the visitor will see a countdown ad, the timer will show that less than 60 hours are left to enjoy the discount

3) After 28 hours the visitor will see a countdown ad, the timer will show that less than 44 hours are left to enjoy the discount

4) After 70 hours the visitor will see a countdown ad, the timer will show that less than two hours are left to enjoy the discount

100% Transparency

The app will use your Facebook pixel and your Facebook ad account, so you can stay in control. Facebook will charge you for the actual ad spend.

Why countdown ads work?

The obvious reason: urgency

Countdown ads are displaying a unique offer that is about to expire. Frequently, users seeing your offer are not ready to buy yet. A countdown is a perfect way to “push” buyers to make a purchase decision.

The not so obvious reason: multi-touch sales funnel

Imagine you see a TV commercial just once. Will it have a strong effect compared to seeing it multiple times over a few days or even weeks?
